I am receiving batches of Emails from .NET Messenger Service Staff ([email protected]) with Subject: Important Security Update for the .NET Messenger Service. This morning I received 8 identical but thankfully I use Mailwasher so they haven?t been downloaded. Is anyone else receiving these messages & could they be another virus?
( Courtesy of click here ) This isn't spyware or adware. It's the messaging service built into Windows which is being used by spammers.(Windows Messenger - not .Net Messenger ). To get rid of it,turn off the messaging service. Windows 2000 and XP:- Go Start > Run > type in services.msc.Double-click on Messenger and in the Messenger Properties window, select Stop, then choose Disable as the Startup Type.Click OK. Windows 95, 98, and ME:- Go to Control Panel and Add/Remove.Select Windows Setup.Select System Tools.Click Details.Uncheck WinPopUp.Click OK
I must admit i have had a load in the last to days, i did open the first few see what it was about, but now i have been deleting them....do you think i might now have a problem with a virus...everthing seems ok.
